COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the worlds most expensive and rare coffee varieties, the beans are specifically selected for their ripeness and quality by the civet, a small jungle marsupial that feeds of the fruit of the coffee cherry. Expertly roasted by San Diegos Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from trade. No bottle date. Big thanks to Richard for this one. Pours pitch black like Speedway should, with a big brown creamy head. Aroma of chocolate and earthy espresso, no super acidic coffee smell, roast. Flavor is some earthy coffee, a bit of metallic flavors, roast, light chocolate. What I do like about this variant is the nutty coffee aftertaste left on the palate. Seems slightly thinner than other Speedway variants, medium carbonation. I am very much not impressed with this. Lacking in flavor and body, a little metallic. Disappointing. Glad to have tried it, of course.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee also dominating. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with bitter and dry coffee notes which almost veers into astringency territory. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good but almost too extreme on the coffee side which diminish the drinkability.
